Do I have to
A. Yes, indeed. Practice is special
you can nurture yourself. On the days when you are too busy to put
in a regular practice, try to fill in at least few minutes to go
over basic techniques so you are always up and running .
What is school
A. School year enrollment allows registering
for the entire school year to go along with your current school
schedule. It reserves your space and time without any surprises
until you wish to terminate.
How many masterclasses
do I have to attend?
A. To maintain a good status, it is
requested that you attend minimum of 2 masterclasses per semester,
and you are welcome to attend all masterclasses upon your will.
How many recitals are there?
A. There are 2 recitals, 1 per term
in January, and in June. It is encouraged that you attend
both recitals as they also represent the student assessment.
What is student assessment?
A. The student assessment brings forth
the whole year's activity together with the highlight
being the recital. Every lesson, every practice days
counts toward the value of assessment, with the goal
of achieving steady improvements over time. This is
to measure the aptitude in piano lesson and to insure
that students enjoy learning on their will and not forced
What is included in the tuition?
A. The tuition reflects your weekly
lessons, masterclasses and recital fee. The main factors in deciding
the rate besides operational expenses include high expertise in teaching, years of experience
and successful methods, teacher credentials, to name a few.
Why is there no makeup lessons offered?
A. There is no makeup lesson for school
year enrollment. To operate and maintain the studio,
there is a lot more operational expense involved
than in need of a piano. Even if a student misses
a lesson, the operational expense cannot be made up
in any way. In average, students tend to miss 3 to 6
lesson per year due to sickness and family emergencies.
Therefore, the tuition rate for school year enrollment is
considerably lower than the regular rate, to cover possible
missed lessons yet still allowing the studio to operate
smoothly. To have makeup lessons, you can enroll with
regular rate, 4 - 12 weeks enrollment.
Can I change my lesson time?
A. Normally, the time that is reserved
in the beginning is the time you will have for the rest
of the school year. Occasionally, you may request for
the time change in the change of the calendar year (2015
heading to 2016 in January) due to some change in upcoming
school activity. Otherwise, time change is not an easy
one since everyone else has settled with the time and
there is little to none empty spot during the lesson
